Sullivan: “I am very upset …”
POUGHKEEPSIE – Republican Copake Town Board Member Dr. Terry Sullivan announced Thursday that she is running for the 106th state Assembly District in Dutchess and Columbia counties. She formally made the announcement at events in Hudson and Poughkeepsie.
Sullivan, a medical speech therapist and audiologist, who considers herself a fiscal conservative, is concerned about affordable healthcare and other issues.
“I am very upset, and I know a lot of people are, with the corruption and the cronyism that exist in Albany today,” she said. “Small businesses are suffering. There is a tremendous amount of waste and fraud and abuse of our tax dollars.”
Sullivan said that incumbent Democrat Didi Barrett of Hudson is more closely aligned with New York City than she is to the Hudson Valley.
